Miley Cyrus Says People Called Her a Lesbian After Her Short Haircut


Miley Cyrus has gone through somewhat of a transformation recently, chopping off most of her hair and switching up her style. Now, the singer/actress has revealed that when she first unveiled her new look, many people blasted her new image and said that her haircut makes her look like a lesbian. She says that she isn’t hurt by comments and actually takes it as a compliment:

“Everyone said I was a lesbian but I’m like, ‘Being a lesbian isn’t a bad thing. So if you think I look a lesbian, I’m not offended. You can call me much worse.’ I’ve been called much worse. Being a lesbian is a compliment more than what else they call me.”

Miley admits that she was surprised by how dramatically things changed for her when she chopped off her hair and thinks it really altered her life:

“No one would have planned a haircut to change my life. I didn’t plan a haircut to change my life. I just cut my hair and then it really changed my life. There’s something about having no hair that it screams being confident. And I think especially because people like to put people in a box, I mean the names I’ve been called since I cut my hair.”

She also comments that her new music might be different, but it’s all about expressing where she is in life right now:

“People don’t realize actually how pun-ny it is when I’m doing things. They’re like, ‘It really feels like you can’t stop.’ ‘It is!’ … What is making my (new) record consistent is the fact that (the songs are) all different and that’s where I am. I’m at a point where it’s like I know who I am, but I’m know that I’m not finished figuring that out and I won’t finished be until I’m in the dirt.”
